Event description

Description

Join us for a free screening of the comedic documentary, "The Muslims Are Coming", in the gym of Trinity Episcopal Church in Asbury Park!

The Muslims Are Coming! is a comedy documentary which follows a band of Muslim-American comedians as they visit big cities, small towns, rural villages, and everything in between to combat Islamophobia! These comedians not only perform standup at each tour stop but create ridiculous interventions in unsuspecting town squares, like the ol' classic, "Ask a Muslim Booth" and “Name That Religion.”

Throughout the film, comedy icons like The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart, David Cross, Janeane Garofalo, Colin Quinn, Lewis Black, Aasif Mandvi and media heavy weights like Rachel Maddow, Russell Simmons, Soledad O’Brien, Ali Velshi and Congressman Keith Ellison comment on the power of comedy and the political scope of bigotry. The film is truly about freedom of religion in America for people all faiths. And rest assured, you’ve never laughed this hard at a Muslim!

The film is co-directed/co-produced by Negin Farsad and Dean Obeidallah.
